Free Consultations
Dr. Chris will meet with you and your child and conduct a clinical examination to determine if and when braces will be necessary. There is no charge for this consultation.

Adult Treatment
Orthodontic treatment can be successful at almost any age. In fact, about one in every five orthodontic patients today is over age 18. Adult orthodontics may positively affect career patterns, social acceptance, and self-confidence. We have enjoyed hearing back from our adult orthodontic patients about the positive difference their new smiles have made in their lives.

Adolescent Treatment
Dr. Chris holds two specialty certificates in dentistry. He has had formal training in pediatric dentistry, as well as orthodontics. This combination gives him a great advantage in relating to his adolescent patients. Most orthodontic treatment begins between the ages of 9 and 14, however, by age 7, most children have a mix of adult and baby teeth. Orthodontists can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth while some baby teeth are still present. That's important, because some orthodontic problems are easier to correct if they're found early.

Empower Self-Ligation Braces
Self-Ligating braces have a unique, patient-friendly design which means that you have less chair time, reduced discomfort and far fewer appointments than with older style braces. There are no elastic or metal ties which means you have less irritation, less plaque build-up and less difficulty keeping your teeth clean.

We are proud to give our patients the option of clear brackets at no extra charge! ($500 - $600 value)
